In this professional development workshop teachers will explore the concept of Shabbat in Jewish tradition, and the meaning of Shabbat in teacher's own lives, asking such questions as: What is my relationship to rest? How I we rest? Why is rest important? What is restful to me? Through an interactive text learning and discussion centered around seven important themes of Shabbat followed by an exploration of these themes through painting and reflective writing, teachers will activate their creativity and gain the tools to reimagine the Shabbat experience in their classrooms.
